Instead of resorting to name calling and the like, why not rationally debate the issue that is PA Voter ID law? And by the way, what is wrong with having a photo ID when one goes to the voting booth to cast that all-important American vote?
Despite what many say that voting is the exclusive right of all Americans, I say voting is among other things, “a privilege.” All it takes is for one to make one visit outside this country to realize how privileged we are that we live in such a country where one can vote freely.
I just returned from the old Soviet Union, the now, “Russian Federation” and I can tell you, if that is all that this country asks of me–to have a photo ID to vote, what little price is that to pay?
Yes, not everything in these united states is great but let's understand one thing, use our vote to replace the crooks in Washington with law-abiding politicians so that we can have a better country. I do not favor nor do I care much for either party because in the past four or five decades, the two-party system has done little for you and I–middle-class Americans, who day in and day out go to work for mere survival.
But, let us be fair about one thing, all of us should be proud to be Americans and living in the best country on Earth. And, if all that this country asks of us is to carry a Voter ID card, then, I will gladly abide and do what is right because the protection of my vote is all too important to be left in the hands of unscrupulous individuals who care more about what is good for them instead of what is good for the United States of America.
I have traveled far and wide and after each return, I kissed the ground of the United States because I realized long ago, how great this country is. One has to just look at the Statue of Liberty in the New York harbor for the story that is, America.
That statue in all its glory, tells the whole story of the American people, a country of immigrants who are free. Yes, this country was from the beginning, and still remains, the land of the free and the brave.
